UC San Diego Health Dietetic Internship

UC San Diego Health offers a 10-month dietetic internship with a Medical Nutrition Therapy concentration in a progressive academic medical center environment.

As the San Diego region’s only academic medical center, UC San Diego Health is the premier destination for those requiring complex multidisciplinary care. It includes hospitals, specialty care centers at two campuses (in La Jolla and Hillcrest) and several outpatient clinics across San Diego County. Find out more about our locations and the medical specialties and services we offer.

Under the supervision of registered dietitians, interns will rotate through experiences in clinical nutrition, food service management, ambulatory/community nutrition and research. Upon satisfactory completion of the internship, graduates will be eligible to take the registration examination for dietitians by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).

The UC San Diego Health Dietetic Internship program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).
